Get to Know Me

How did you begin your career in the art world?

I first started working with the artist collective Island6 in Shanghai, China, that combined local and traditional Chinese craftmanship with global themes present with new media and interactive technology.

What are the most interesting aspects of your work?

I truly enjoy the opportunity to work together with collectors of all backgrounds in building or expanding unique collections that have very special and personal points of view. Through this, I can support artists of diverse heritage and perspectives in various stages of their careers and deepen connections to the art world.

Tell us about the most recent / last piece you acquired?

The most recent piece I acquired for my personal collection was a painting by LA-based artist Chris Fallon. The work is so uniquely strange and executed with such detail. I can sit in front of it all day and see something new each time.
